Hi
I'd love to find the early animation of an 'older desklamp', probably a 'Mother' showing the younger smaller desklamp, how to play with a ball.
It ends up with the youngster bursting the ball.
Any leads gratefully received.

You described the short Luxo Jr. an animation made by PIXAR's John Lasseter in 1986. It's available on an out-of-print VHS release called TINY TOY STORIES, and as an extra on the TOY STORY 2 DVD. The lamp has become PIXAR's mascot, seen in the opening credits of every film PIXAR produces.

You can watch the film online:

Thanks for your response and the link.
I was completely captivated when I first saw this work, it's still holds up today.
